Heard on the Hill

Rep. Adam Kinzinger kicked off the weekend ahead of the Fourth of July with his own set of fireworks. Per his latest Instagram post, the Illinois Republican is engaged.

“She said: yes!” reads the caption.


It’s a timely post given that this Sunday is World Social Media Day. What better way to spread the news far and wide than, well, social media?

A deep investigation on Linkedin makes it appear that the “Sofia” is Sofia Boza-Holman, the director of strategic media for Vice President Mike Pence. She previously worked for former Speaker John A. Boehner.

Kinzinger’s House colleagues, including Reps. Elise Stefanik, Mark Walker and Larry Bucshon, are already leaving congratulatory comments for the happy couple. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy even offered to officiate at the nuptials.
